G is for God

…God is Love. 1 John 4:8

As an alcoholic with a depressed demeanor I must say that the “Poor Me’s” via God does not love me, God is not real, and worse was my mantra.  However with recovery has come an awareness of the Love of God in my life.   In the beginning I fought the idea of belief in God as was suggested in my self-help groups.  I remember the day that I stopped doubting and quit the debating society.  I was talking to my sponsor George N.  George was a former Irish Christian Brother.  I said something to George about my disbelief in God.  He looked me in the eye and said, “Knock it off Danny, you know exactly who God is!”

I knew at that moment he was correct.  I knew God in my heart and soul.  It was the same God that I prayed to in every tight spot.  It was the same God that I thanked for getting me through all of the negatives and positives in my life!  It was the same God of my childhood.  It was the God I love and the God that Loves me.

Today I am truly grateful for the Love of God in my life.

Go, Go, Go…
